Description

If you are looking for some sustained climbing in northwest North Carolina, then check out this trail. The trail tread bounces back and forth from doubletrack to singletrack and is not very technical, but there are some pitches that will make your legs scream! The reward for your hard work is the overlook at Devils Garden at the Blue Ridge Parkway.
